I have a package with a directory “tests” in which I’m storing my unit tests. My package looks like:

├── models
│   └── __init__.py
├── README.md
├── requirements.txt
├── tc.py
├── tests
│   ├── db
│   │   └── test_employee.py
│   └── test_tc.py
└── todo.txt

From my package directory, I want to be able to find both tests/test_tc.py and tests/db/test_employee.py. I’d prefer not to have to install a third-party library (nose or etc) or have to manually build a TestSuite to run this in.

Surely there’s a way to tell unittest discover not to stop looking once it’s found a test? python -m unittest discover -s tests will find tests/test_tc.py and python -m unittest discover -s tests/db will find tests/db/test_employee.py. Isn’t there a way to find both?
